Towering sunflowers


N-Sunflower

Jackson Gregory, the son of Peri and David Cordes, of Sand Lake, grew these sunflowers, measuring 11 feet 6 inches from seeds started last June, when he was in Mrs. Moline’s first grade class at McNaughton Elementary. Jackson’s mom said that once the flowers die off, Jackson puts the flower heads on the back fence so that the birds can eat the seeds. Great thinking, Jackson!

More sunflowers


AWE-Sunflower-OstromWe received two more sunflower entries this week. One was from Lori Ostrom, of Nelson Township. Grandma Hale and Harlee are standing next to the sunflowers in their garden, with the tallest reaching 11 feet 6 inches.

Marjorie Merritt, of the Village of Sand Lake, also sent us photos of the sunflowers in their garden. She said that this year, she didn’t even plant any sunflowers—they just came up on their own! Her tallest one also reached 11 feet 6 inches.

Giant sunflower


Barbara Kilts, of Solon Township, sent along a photo of her standing next to a giant sunflower in her yard. We don’t know how tall it is, but Barbara is at least 5-foot 8-inches tall, so we know it’s a big one! Barbara planted the sunflower, and now she is drying the seeds for the birds.
